In Ohio, your insurance company has a legal duty to treat you fairly and settle your claim in a timely and expeditious manner. If it fails to do so, you may be entitled to additional damages under our state's insurance bad faith laws.
At Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty, we have a 45-year history of helping people obtain the insurance benefits they paid for.
Holding Insurance Companies Accountable
Insurance bad faith comes in many forms:
- Failure to investigate your claim
- Denying your claim without reasonable justification
- Forcing you to accept an unfair settlement because you are financially vulnerable
- Delaying payment of an undisputed claim
- Deliberately misinterpreting your policy to avoid paying you
An insurance company that acts in bad faith is liable for the compensatory damages resulting from the bad faith conduct, including economic losses, attorney fees and possible punitive damages. Our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of the Ohio bad faith insurance laws. We also have access to expert witnesses who can testify about damages resulting from the bad faith conduct.
